UCSD Proposes Another La Jolla Hospital

May 17, 2010 12:54 p.m.

Irwin and Joan Jacobs have donated $75 million toward a new $664 million Jacobs Medical Center, which will house a new 245-bed medical tower as well as a cancer-care hospital, advanced surgery unit and maternity and infant care. Federal healthcare reform will also change the landscape. We discuss the impact of both on medical care here.
